Nature Inside is the theme of the 5th edition of the international outdoor design competition for young talents (under 35), organized by Sun, the 30th International Outdoor Furnishings Fair, in collaboration with CarusoDangeliStudio. The contest wants to trigger a process of fertilization, cultivation and hybriding between design and the bio-based disciplines. This activity of ‘translation’ can be an opportunity for reflection on the relationship between nature and artifice. The goal of the work is to create permanent or temporary outdoor furnishings and accessories, for public use (hotels, seaside facilities, shopping centers, etc.) or private situations (gardens, balconies, terraces) that integrate nature (vegetable, mineral, animal) or pay attention to the various phases of the life of the product: invention, product, use, disposal. The artifact should therefore be aesthetically and/or functionally based on a natural element/principle, contained in its structure or in the performance of its function. All design proposals should be sent to sunlab@fierecom.itBy Friday 15 June the official listing of the selected projects will be visible at The selected prototypes will be given free display space at the 30th edition of the Sun Fair (Rimini Fiera, 7-9 October 2012) inside the exhibition “Sun.Lab: for a creative outdoor”, in close contact with sector companies. The prototypes will also be featured in the media communications of the Fair.
